The combination of advances in distributed systems and cryptography is bringing
about a revolution not only in finance, with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies,
but in many other fields whose list keeps growing. The LASER 2018 summer school
brings the best experts in the field, from both industry and academia, to
provide an in-depth exploration of the fascinating software issues and solutions
behind these breakthrough technology advances.
It should be an exciting session.
Deadline for registration at early prices is February 10.
